Good morning.

Optional Musical Accompaniment

Vanderbilt baseball swept a doubleheader at Hawaii on Saturday, winning the first game 12-1 and the second game 13-1. In the first game, Commodore starter Carter Holton carried a perfect game into the seventh inning. Vanderbilt will conclude the series today at 5:05 PM CT; unlike yesterday’s, this will be streamed on ESPN+.

Basketball survived a 63-61 win at Ole Miss to close out its regular season yesterday, and by “survived” I mean “missed the front end of a one-and-one twice in the final minute while holding a two-point lead, but Ole Miss couldn’t make a shot either.” Vanderbilt will open the SEC Tournament against Georgia on Wednesday night.

Today, lacrosse plays at Denver at 1 PM CT; also at 1, men’s tennis visits Arkansas, and women’s tennis visits Alabama.

Two NCAA bids on the line today: Longwood (heh) faces Winthrop at 11 AM on ESPN2 in the Big South championship, and Loyola-Chicago plays Drake in the MVC final at 1 PM on CBS. (Also, CAA, why the hell do you have a contract with FloHoops?)
